This article proposes a fluid mechanics-inspired perspective to explore galactic dynamics and spacetime curvature. It suggests that spacetime can be considered as a fabric under tension, influencing the trajectory of galaxies analogously to particles in a viscous fluid. The presented visualization artistically reflects this concept, showing galaxies moving over a concave surface akin to a convex lens, moving away from the center and towards the edges, akin to the behavior of viscous fluid droplets on a slanted surface. This model offers an opportunity to rethink cosmological theories and could provide new avenues for interpreting astronomical observations.
